"This Mother’s Day is super special for me: it’s also my Mother’s birthday; on the same day. She is so thrilled and anxious about this double whammy, which seems to only happen every few years. She’s been suggesting ideas of what she’d like to do, how she wants to be pampered, and by whom she’d like to be surrounded. We all comply and indulger her fully. I can only imagine how special it must feel to be recognized for two significant occasions in one single moment. If it were only Mother’s Day for, it would still be okay.
My Mother’s double day inspired the brief but targeted message in this issue, designed to be a gift guide for last minute ideas for the Mother’s in our lives. As my mother and I get older, I realize and relish in that Mother’s day is every day. The work, sacrifice, and rearing she does never ends, really. My sister and I occasionally compare notes on our interaction with Maim and agree that no matter our differing lifestyles and needs, Mami always serves up the perfect solution. Whether it’s a joke, making the challenge lighter, or a stern stamp of disapproval (or approval), her judgment and counsel never fails. She’s spared both of us tremendous pain with her wisdom and love. My sister and I are thankful for that."
